Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2022-068: Autopsy Reports

PJ O’Rourke has died.  He was 74 and apparently had lung cancer.  That is unfortunate but makes sense.  Sidney Poitier was 94 when he died so there was no shock involved.  We ended 2021 with Betty White just missing 100.  But there are others that make you wonder.

Recently Bob Saget died recently.  He was 65 and I think in modern, Western terms you could say, “only 65.”  There is controversy over how he died.  The official story was that he fell and hit his head.  The rumors are there was severe trauma involved which makes you think about murder.  One wonders if he knew something about a certain presidential candidate.

Louie Anderson, 68, died of cancer and Meatloaf at 74.  I must admit I did not really know who these were.  Since I am 74 I take these things seriously.  I am entering the age when the other shoe can drop at any time.  

Every time I hear of someone dying before their time I wonder what they knew and whom they knew it about.  I wonder if they took any of the experimental vaccines or boosters.  I wonder about their long term consumption of alcohol and their past history of illegal drugs.  There are a lot of behaviors that can add little bits of damage.  Eventually those little bits can coalesce into something deadly.  It is a good thing I am totally ignorant, healthy and a prude.
